This place is a shame to a beautiful country like New Zealand and its lovely people. Everywhere inch of this dump - room, linen, cushions, bathroom, lobby, lift, etc can be described in three words. DIRTY, SMELLY & FILTHY. Can’t understand why authorities in NZ allow this disgusting place to operate. Would NEVER EVEN SIGHT this s...hole again.

The hotel is very well situated and has good parking. It is however a little 'tired' but our room was clean and comfortable. The main problem was that our room had an adjoining door to the next room and there was no soundproofing at all! Staff were very friendly and helpful.

We went to a different motel only to find out that they didnt have any free rooms. The man in charge seriously recommended this hotel. So we accepted as we felt quite secure of this man recommending the hotel. As soon as you arrive you know something isnt right. Chinese owners obviously trying to keep maintaince costs down. My opinion... More

That is a great space in the city. Just right behind CBD, save your parking and walk. Go anywhere is all close. The staff is nice and friendly. Room price is really valuable. I will suggest to my friends if they go.

An absolute dump that should be closed down. The room were dirty, dodgy, peeling bath, thick black mould around all water basins/bath, filthy curtains, stains on walls. A motorbike parked inside the non existant restaurant, litter on the floor, only stayed because it as prepaid. DONOT stay here its that bad, furthermore Expedia should remove this motel from there database.

Only stayed as we had prepaid. One of the dingiest revolting hotels we have ever stayed. They don't even service the rooms and the rooms are stained ... Very dodgy. Do not recommend at all! I guess it's a you get what you pay for but gather the coins and stay elsewhere

where to start? How about the toilet that leaked from the waste pipe into the floor. Or the toilet door that would not shut due to a broken edge. Or the television remote with an Asian script so you couldn't work out what to do. Or the filthy cushions on the bed. Or the stained bedspread. Or the bare lightbulbs... More

The only reason I stayed at this place was to be able to arrive at the inter islander ferry terminal early without any problems. I would not go there ever again. It smelled of what I could only describe as stale urine. All the washers in the taps needed replacing. I got sick of the drip drip drip. The walls... More
